Bronx Zoo Transforming into a Modern Day Jurassic Park

May 7, 2013

More than two dozen animatronic dinosaurs now reside at the zoo, as part of an exhibit opening May 25 that will take New Yorkers to the Cretaceous and beyond.

Dinosaur Safari is coming to the Bronx Zoo beginning Memorial Day weekend. The new attraction will include a ride through the Cretaceous and Jurassic periods, showcasing more than two-dozen animatronic dinosaurs that move, snarl, roar and spit.

The New York Daily News visited the zoo on the morning of the exhibit’s installation, to watch as zoo staff unloaded the massive creatures, which include a 7,000-pound Tyrannosaurus Rex
